Yes its a memory hog and has been for some time. Gnome and enlightenment
don't help. I think sawmill probabaly uses less memory.

This is a point where I think open sourse has a problem because people
complain about windows bloat when in fact linux + X + Gnome + WM requires
more hardware to run at the same speed.
